[QUOTE="savoy64, jacking up the car makes it easier to turn the bolt---but then you have to get the car off the jack and measure according to the manual------we left the car on the ground while adjusting---it is harder-----but the jack routine will be torture too QUOTE]
tightening the jack bolt with weight on it puts a hell of a strain on the threads, (fine). It won't take much to gaul them. lowering and raising a well placed floor jack just makes it easy and protects from damage. Not a big effort.
